News / Spider-Man Black
WARNING: This article contains spoilers for Venomized #1 by Cullen Bunn, Iban Coello, Matt Yackey and Joe Caramagna, on sale now. Change seems to be a constant in the life of Peter Parker. In the pages of Amazing Spider-Man, the web-slinger went from billionaire tech genius to disgraced science editor at his former employer, the Daily Bugle. As for Peter’s alter ego Spider-Man, the hero has to contend with the return of Norman Osborn and his new deadly persona, the Red Goblin. Venomized May Have Explained the Return of Spider-Man’s Black Costume. Another upcoming change will come behind the scenes when writer Dan Slott steps down from his 10-year run on Amazing Spider-Man, with writer Nick Spencer and artist Ryan Ottley relaunching the series in June as part of Marvel’s “Fresh Start.”Spider-Man’s new beginning will also include the return of his black costume. Not much is known at the moment regarding why Spider-Man has decided to go back to black, but Venomized #2 suggests the suit could be another Klyntar symbiote — similar to the one worn by the antihero Venom. These Symbiotes Are… Different The Poisons’ first objective when they arrive on Earth is to infect the superhuman population with symbiotes, so they can then feast on them and steal their powers. Spider-Man was one of the first heroes to be bonded with a symbiote, but when he tried to remove it using the sound of a clock belltower, he was unsuccessful. Somehow, the Poisons have altered Spider-Man’s symbiote to remove one of its known weaknesses.
